Washington Post Very Concerned Over Scott Walker Leaving College Early

These are the kinds of stories that will emanate from the Credentialed Media as the silly season, ie, primaries leading to the general election, approaches and gets in full swing, at least as how it applies to Republicans. There will be lots of concerned articles as well as “just wondering”, like how they wondered multiple times whether McCain was eligible to be president, since he was born in the Panama Canal Zone (he was). Or whether he had an affair (he didn’t). Or Romney’s dog on the roof, and haircut “outrage” when he was in high school. Of course, Democrats are mostly given a pass

As Scott Walker mulls White House bid, questions linger over college exit

Scott Walker was gone. Dropped out. And in the spring of his senior year.

In 1990, that news stunned his friends at Marquette University. Walker, the campus’s suit-wearing, Reagan-loving politico — who enjoyed the place so much that he had run for student body president — had left without graduating.

To most of the Class of 1990 — and, later, to Wisconsin’s political establishment — Walker’s decision to quit college has been a lingering mystery.

Not even his friends at Marquette were entirely sure why he never finished. Some had heard that a parent had fallen ill, or maybe there was some financial strain. Others thought he had simply had enough of school.

This is amusing for two reason: it is a thinly veiled hit piece ahead of Walker potentially running for president. Second, the Washington Post is one of the major outlets who utterly refused to take a serious look into Obama’s background, much less his college years. As ulyssesmsu writes in the comments

You damn hypocrites. You write an article this big about Barack Obama’s sealed college records first, and then maybe you’ll have the credibility to investigate Scott Walker. First Obama, then everyone else.

Do not expect any similar pieces on Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth (Fauxahontas) Warren, or other Democrats, expect as a way to explain the issues away. And, other than the Washington Post, who still has questions about Walker leaving college over 20 years ago?
